    Weird Al defies every law of pop. Novelty / humor acts like his are supposed to be a flash in the pan one hit wonder. They all are, except for Weird Al. His career has outlasted most of the acts he has parodied, and he is one of the most prolific pop musicians of our time.

    "The Saga Begins" (a parody of Don McLean's "American Pie"

    Wings' "Live and Let Die", entitled "Chicken Pot Pie"

    my bologna~"My Sharona" by The Knack

    James Blunt's permission to record a parody of "You're Beautiful". However, after Yankovic had recorded "You're Pitiful", Blunt's label, Atlantic Records, rescinded this permission.

    "Another One Rides the Bus", a parody of Queen's hit, "Another One Bites the Dust".

    "Achy Breaky Song", which refers to the song "Achy Breaky Heart",

    "(This Song's Just) Six Words Long", which refers to the repetitious lyrics in "Got My Mind Set On You"

    Yankovic has always requested permission from the original artist before recording his parodies.[4] Most artists have had positive reactions to Yankovic's parodies. Several have considered it to be something of a badge of honor to have Yankovic ask permission to parody their song or style, since they felt that Yankovic wouldn't choose to do so unless they were a success or had made an impact on the music scene at the time. There are, however, a few notable exceptions, where people have not allowed parodies or otherwise withdrawn permission.

    Yankovic was denied permission to make a video for "Couch Potato", his parody of Eminem's "Lose Yourself":
